The Love of a FUGEfamily

Posted: May 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is Day 5 of FUGE training 2012.  As the days go on, we become even more excited about our first week of camp.  We have become a family.  We are no longer just staff members.  From diving into God’s word in bible study training, to playing silly name games, to participating in Nine Square in the Air at rec, to laying hands upon each other and praying for one another, our group of 28 people has turned into a group of 1.  Today’s theme was UNITY, and we were really able to grasp onto what it really looked like for the body of Christ to come together as one body with many gifts for a common goal–to advance the Kingdom of God.  If I could say one thing about what I have learned thus far, it would go something like this:

“When you just let go and follow God, He will bless you in ways that you can NEVER imagine. He is    absolutely faithful and soverign. Yea there will be hard times, and I mean really hard times throughout, but it is SO worth it in the end. #testify #soblessed #unionfuge2012”.

Prayer:

1) Pray that God would keep Satan at bay as we continue to grow closer as a staff.

2) Pray that God would begin to prepare the hearts of the students and adults who will be coming to camp this summer.

3) Pray that God would grant the staff strength as we continue training to make camp the best it can be.

So this summer’s journey comes straight to you from Centrifuge 2012.  I will be updating my readers about the ins and outs of life as a staffer.  I will be informing you of cool things that the Lord is doing and will update you on prayer concerns throughout.  I hope that this can be used as a guide to enliven your prayer times for us and the ministry that God is doing this summer.

Thank you for supporting us.  

Love in Christ Jesus,

This week we have been in Paterson, WA.  We helped the VBS at the Paterson Community Church.  My fifth Big Apple Adventure is complete.  Check, done, complete. 

God did some crazy, amazing stuff in my life this week.  He broke me down, and built me back up almost constantly.  This week I have learned about the importance of prayer and how to ultimately depend on Christ for every situation.  My God is amazing.

Definitely getting a little ready to come home….just a little.  Don’t get too excited. lol.

The Washington Post: 6

As I sit here in Starbucks at 2:59 p.m., listening to Kim Walker’s “Your Love Never Fails”, I am not seeing just people. I am seeing lost souls. One thing is the same throughout. There is different ages, ethnicity, culture, race, sex–but do they really know Christ? Are they certain of their eternal destiny? What am I going to do? What are we going to do? We can’t save the nations, but You say ask and I shall give the nations to you. Are we asking? Do we care? Let’s get busy America. We are losing our mission field. Get real or get gone. Matthew 24:36- we may be running out of time.

Psalm 84:12
LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you.

Today was the salvation day at the VBS and Backyard Bible club that went on.  I am not sure about the other team’s day, but my team for the week had an amazing time.  We presented the gospel through evangelism cubes and through the salvation bracelet.  It was definitely evident that the Spirit of the Lord was there.  It was also evident, however, that the devil had his hand all over the place.  He didn’t want that to go down today.  Despite everything that didn’t go as “(we) planned”, the Lord was victorious.  The gospel was presented several times and seeds were planted. 

Continue to pray for the physical strength and spiritual state of each of our team members.

Mission1012

I really don’t know what to say in order to catch you up on this summer, but I did want to let you know how it has been going.  I have had three mission assignments thus far.  This past Saturday I chased balls, picked up pins, and ran around in a chicken suit for three hours.  We had a block party at Reata Springs Baptist Church.  This week we have been doing a backyard bible club at a backyard in Burbank.  I basically have been in control of the recreation.  We have had a relay race, semi obstacle course, and today was water day!  Yes–we had a BLAST!!  I had endless buckets of water thrown on my head. 

PLEASE be praying for Thursday as that is the day that we will be sharing the gospel multiple times.  Pray for Victoria, as she is teaching the lesson and explaining the salvation bracelet that day. 

Last night started our Big Apple Adventure.  I helped out a friend in the fifth and sixth grade class.  I had never helped with that age group.  It was great.  We had a lot of fun and excitement.  I just love VBS and what it stands for.                                                            

On a personal level, God has been doing some amazing things.  I am learning to depend on Him even more than before.  I am learning how to become a servant leader.  The hardest part of leading is being willing to follow.  When you are put into certain situations, God has to become the center of our lives.  It all stems from love–the greatest commandment of them all.  If we love Him then the love He has shown us will automatically be spread to the ones around us.  JELLO- Jesus Energizes (our) Lives and Loves Outrageously–the missionary’s life statement.  🙂
